The Seventh International Congress on Advanced Electromagnetic Materials in Microwaves and Optics – Metamaterials 2013, will comprise a 4-day Conference (16-19 September), and a 2-day Doctoral School (20–21 September). Organized by the Metamorphose Virtual Institute and hosted by the Université de Bordeaux, this Congress follows the success of Metamaterials 2007-2012 and continues the traditions of the highly successful series of International Conferences on Complex Media and Metamaterials (Bianisotropics) and Rome International Workshops on Metamaterials and Special Materials for Electromagnetic Applications and TLC. The Congress will provide a unique forum to share the latest results of the metamaterials research in Europe and worldwide and bring together the engineering, physics, and material science communities working in the field of artificial electromagnetic materials and their applications at microwaves, millimeter waves, terahertz, and optical frequencies. The Doctoral School following the Conference is a unique opportunity for students and young researchers to get exposure to the latest advancements in the field of metamaterials and to meet the leading experts in this rapidly developing field. For further information about the school please visit the EUPROMETA programme website. Metamaterials 2013 Congress will mark the 20-year anniversary of the first international meeting on complex-media electromagnetics, Bi-isotropics'93 - Workshop on Novel Microwave Materials (February 1993, Helsinki University of Technology, Finland), a predecessor of the Metamaterials Congress series.
